Phuket’s Big Buddha, known among Thais as the Phra Puttamingmongkol Akenakkiri Buddha in full, is one of the most important and revered landmarks on the island. It is 25 meters across at the base. The whole body is layered with beautiful white Burmese marble that shines in the sun, making it a natural symbol of hope. The 45 meters high huge image sits on top of the Hills between Chalong and Kata and it is easily seen from far away. The majestic site offers the best 360-degree views of the island and the actual statue itself is breathtaking.
The Big Buddha is one of the top things to do in Phuket. It is easily reachable, 6 km from Phuket’s main artery, and it takes about 25 minutes by car from Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort and Spa.
To get there, please contact our tour desk at the hotel. It is a must-visit island destination!
